Putting Principals to the Test: Transforming NYC Schools in the Age of Data-Driven Accountability.
Moderated by Clara Hemphill, senior editor at the
Center for New York City Affairs | http://newschool.edu/milano/nycaffairs
The Bloomberg administration has introduced a radical new system of school management, giving principals more freedom in exchange for the promise of better test scores and graduation rates. Crucial to this plan are test-based accountability systems, which focus attention on struggling learners. At the same time, the traditional oversight by superintendents is gone. Does this strategy build better schools? What has been gained, lost, and learned? The Center for New York City Affairs will release an analysis of these influential and controversial reforms at the conference, which they are sponsoring.
